END EXTENSION ASH DINING TABLE
|Ash wood has relatively even coloring and beautiful graining. As a result, it takes stain very well. To leverage this natural beauty, we will hand rub your ash extension table with an all-natural oil stain that adheres to the individual wood fibres and cures to a durable, matte finish. You can see the options on stain colors below.|
||Ash has a similar look to oak in that the grain is visible and relatively straight. However, as with most things in nature, it is the slight differences in the pattern of the grain that give the wood its uniqueness and beauty.|
|Your table will be built uniquely for you, your style and your space. Below you will find standard options for customizing the size of the table and the extensions as well as the leg style. Should you wish, there is also an option to contact us if you need a unique size or a different leg style. We’re here to help you design the table that will work best for you.|
||Classic edge ash makes use of the wood that is towards the center of the tree. A classic edge has the squared off corners we traditionally associate with a table. However, we do offer some alternate edge treatments that are highlighted below. When we build a classic edge walnut table, we can use 6/4 planks, resulting in a finished table top that is 1 1/4” thick or we can use 8/4 planks, resulting in a finished table top that is 1 3/4" thick.|
|We choose to build our ash table tops out of multiple narrower planks as this produces a stronger table top that resists warping and because we can use more of the tree. In choosing the planks, we aim to have the coloring as consistent as possible|
||Loewen Design Studios is proud to build ash extension tables that you will enjoy for a long time – perhaps they will even become treasured family heirlooms. We choose all components of your table for their beauty as well as their durability.|
|A key consideration when building an extension table with natural wood is the need to keep the grain running the longest direction in the extensions themselves to avoid warping. We accomplish this by using breadboard style extensions that drop in on the two ends where the grain of the extensions runs perpendicular to the core table.|
I was able to get a dining table with custom dimensions. It is STUNNING! I highly recommend them!
We absolutely love the table Ted and his son made for us! We wanted a very long unique wood table (132 in x 26 in) and Ted worked with us diligently to make sure we got exactly what we wanted. Everyone was extremely communicative and emails were answered in a timely fashion - I never felt like I was bothering anyone even with simple questions. The table only took a few weeks to make and then was hand delivered by Ted himself! The table is a beautiful work of art that we will use for years and years - we are more than happy with how it turned out. We can’t say enough nice things, I highly recommend!!
Received the table today and it’s more beautiful than anticipated. Thanks to Loewen Design for a beautiful piece of functional art.
Very solid , great table. Im very happy I made the decision to get it.
We purchased the walnut extension table and were able to customize dimensions to fit perfectly in our less than perfectly sized dining room. We also added two customized matching benches. They are well built, beautiful and everything we hoped. Dealing with this company is fantastic. Not the lousy customer service we have sadly come to expect. Delivery by Ted was an added bonus! Wish he could have stayed for dinner. Can’t recommend Loewen Design enough and have already done so to a few friends.
Our custom table is perfect! We have a small apartment but like to entertain. The Loewen Design Team created a beautiful compact extension table for us.
In addition, the table was finished in weeks instead of months. Delivery was also great, with one of the team members setting it up in no time at all.
Everyone at Loewen was a pleasure to interact with - responsive and helpful, as well as just darn nice.
I highly recommend this company for custom tables.
The Team was wonderful to work with, super responsive and communicative, and the table is absolutely stunning. We couldn’t be happier with the process and the product and highly, highly recommend them!
Absolutely love our table. Worked with Loewen to design the perfect table and it came out beautifully. It's stunning, well made, and the customer service was amazing. Loewen went above and beyond. We expected it to be shipped via a common shipping company but one of the Loewen owners personally delivered it to our house and set it up (they are in Ontario and we are in Massachusetts!). Cannot recommend them enough!
We are so thrilled with our new walnut dining table. It’s exactly what we were hoping for and is even more beautiful in person than the pictures show.
This table is perfection! I can’t say enough good things about Loewen Design Studio. Great communication throughout the whole process! Table arrived and was packed and delivered on time and protected.
Ted was incredibly helpful and responsive as we worked through the details of my custom table. The product is a gorgeous extendable 8-ft walnut table that will last us a lifetime. It was delivered within just weeks of finalizing the order. They dealt with all the details of shipping, so the whole thing was incredibly easy, and so much more affordable than some other vendors I spoke with. Thank you!
Ted and his crew built a custom-sized table for us and we are very much loving it! He responds to all inquires and emails in a timely manner and was very accommodating to our specific requests. We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the table - exceeded our expectations! Will definitely order from Ted again for any custom table needs!! Highly highly recommend!
Our table is gorgeous and essentially perfect. We love it so much. The shipment arrived on time and was very well-packaged. We had no issues putting the legs on. Thank you so much!!!!
My husband and I are completing some final steps in our renovation and I can't wait to set-up our exquisite dining table! When we unpacked the table I was so excited to see the beautiful walnut wood grain and warm, rich colour! I can't stop running my hand over the smooth finish! We are extremely happy with the craftmanship of our custom-made table! It is exactly what I ordered! I will submit a photo once we have our dining area completed and our table set-up.
Just want to thank you again for this amazing piece of art in my home. From start to finish, Ted and the entire Loewen family were amazing to work with and so incredibly accommodating. I could not be happier with my table. It passed my expectations in quality and design and I show it off every time someone comes over. It is my favorite part of my entire home remodel! I will tell everyone I know about Loewen Design Studios and the quality of work you do.
Ash can be oiled in a variety of colours
Choose the finish that best suits your space!
WE OFFER A VARIETY OF EDGES TO THE TABLE
The edge you choose for your table will have a significant impact on the feel of the table.
Some edges also change the corner.
These pictures show the an image from the side of the table to see how the edge impacts the shape, except the Bullnose which is shown from the end. The top view also shows the corner of the table to be able to see how that's impacted.
If you would like to see some images of fully assembled tables to help with the decision making process feel free to reach out! We're happy to help!
WHAT SIZE TABLE ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
Here are a couple guides to understand some of the standard sizes we offer, and how many people they seat.
The other factor in table sizing is your room! Depending on what else you have in the room you'll want to make sure the proportions are good.
We make custom sizes too!
If these aren't quite right, or you're looking for something bigger, reach out to us! We'll be happy to get something set up for you!
OUR END EXTENSION TABLES DO EXACTLY THAT, THEY EXTEND FROM THE END
Each end has a piece that sits on a standard extension table rail to provide extra space for when you need it. This style means the table without extensions is just like a regular table, and when you do need to add a little length, the table stays exactly where it is.
The extensions also frame the table beautiful when installed as the grain runs perpendicular to the rest of the table. This both increases the strength and a wonderful look for your table.
Typically an 18" extension adds two place settings. If you need more space or don't quite have that much room we can offer other sizes as well. Please reach out to us if you need something custom!
The above is a 36" wide and 72" long table with 2 18" extensions.
As shown, the extensions add about two place settings each, at maximum.
